Combined Journal-Thrust Bearings

Designs Variants

Combined Journal-Thrust Bearings are used to absorb radial and axial loads on the hydrodynamic principle of action. They are usually designed as thick-walled compound sliding bearings and are used for many purposes in the industry and mechanical engineering.

Axial thrust collar (unilateral / double-sided)
Bearing shells (split) / socket (non split)
With or without screw connection / pinning

Bearing bore geometries

Our experience enables us to manufacture the axial and radial functional surfaces with complex multi-surface profiles.

Cylindrical bearing
Two-lobe bearing (lemon bore)
Bearing with offset and double offset
Three-lobe bearing
Four-lobe and multi-surface bearing
Grooves, holes and pockets for oil supply and hydrostatic according to customer specification

Axial multi-surface profiles

Incorporation of solid wedge surfaces
One direction of rotation / independent of the direction of rotation
Grooves/Notches and pockets for oil supply and hydrostatic
